Marilyn Davenport, the Tea Partier who sent out an email with Obama's face superimposed on the body of a chimp, has issued a slightly more complete apology for her behavior:

To my fellow Americans and to everyone else who has seen this email I forwarded and was offended by my action, I humbly apologize and ask for your forgiveness of my unwise behavior. I say unwise because at the time I received and forwarded the email, I didn't stop to think about the historic implications and other examples of how this could be offensive.

However, she still refuses to resign, despite Republican party officials urging her to do so.
